The fan’s cosplay of League of Legends laughing anarchist Jinx is so intricate that not even Piltover and his wardens’ army could stop it.
A creative fan is geared up to be everyone’s enemy with her cosplay of the gun-wielding Jinx from League of Legends.
Cosplayer Eleanor Barnes went to paint the town red in the steampunk outfit that was inspired by The Loose Cannon’s appearance in the animated spinoff show Arcane. Barnes was particularly conscious of preserving and replicating Jinx’s cloud blue tattoos. She also said that she was having trouble removing the material.

First introduced back in 2013, Jinx quickly became one of the most popular champions in League of Legends due to her wild smile and massive arsenal of explosives. The minigun-wielding gunman was featured in a variety of short stories that included her own music video as well as specific shorts that focused on fleshing out the cities of Piltover and Zaun. In the last few years, she was one of the protagonists in Arcane, the show that pioneered Riot’s transition into television media. The show illuminated Jinx’s story by revealing how Powder, Vi’s serene and quiet sister, turned into the chaotically impulsive criminal in the first episode.
“She wasn’t born to be an extremely sexually attractive sociopath. Ella Purnell, Jinx’s voice actress, has said that this doesn’t happen. Jinx became the person she is because of the trauma she suffered. I think that seeing Powder at the start of the season can be helpful in setting that context for the audience.” Purnell stated that Jinx’s wild energetic, impulsive personality was one of the most interesting traits of her character. She highlighted the way she switched from brattiness to impulsiveness.

Christian Linke, the executive producer of Arcane also thought that Jinx and Vi’s complex relationship was a great starting point for League of Legends’s epic mythos. He believed that this relationship could be utilized without overwhelming newcomers. The creative team wanted to create an engaging forum for discussion among Runterra fans as well as those who’ve stuck with the IP.
Riot Games has discussed the possibility of an live-action series to League of Legends due to Arcane‘s success. Shauna Spenley, Riot Global’s president of entertainment, has announced that the company plans to test other media for entertainment. She claimed Riot was “just exploring the waters” of both film and television content.
League of Legends is a free-to-play MMOBA available on PC. Its animated spinoff series Arcane is streaming exclusively on Netflix.
